There are a lot of moving parts that go into planning an event, from reserving the right space to coordinating all the necessary resources. Event request forms in Calendar help you collect the information you need from people so those event details don’t get lost in the shuffle.

But instead of the forms being tedious for someone to fill out, now you can make your forms responsive so people only receive questions based on their previous responses.

So you learn exactly what you need to plan an event, but with fewer questions!

How? Using conditional logic. Here’s how it works.

Adapting Your Questions in Real-Time

Conditional logic is the function of displaying or hiding follow-up questions on a form based on how someone answered previous questions. It’s all about choices! 

For example, when your requester plans their event, are they thinking on-site or off-site?

Since you can tailor the form based on their choice, on-site event requesters can ask for rooms and resources seamlessly, while off-site requesters can dive into location and transportation details.

Adding Conditional Logic in Calendar Forms

On your event request forms, you’ll now see the option to add a conditional field anytime you have multiple fields on your form.

From there, you can build out the questions to go in the direction you need to get any necessary event details.

Using conditional logic in forms provides a smooth experience for everyone, free from unnecessary questions—an event requester can answer the right things quickly, and you can collect the exact information you need.

Win, win.
